Tropical Storm Bud grows off Mexico's Pacific coast

Tropical Storm Bud grows off Mexico's Pacific coast

Forecasters said Aletta is now a Category 3 hurricane. Increasing wind shear and cooler waters will lead to steady weakening Saturday but Aletta will likely maintain its major hurricane status over the next 24 hours with some fluctuation in strength.

Both storms could cause high surf, rip currents, rainbands and possibly flash flooding to occur.

The hurricane is forecast to move roughly parallel to the Mexican coast for several days and then head farther out into the Pacific Ocean.

"All residents and interests in this area should continue to closely monitor the progress of this evolving system".

The storm, which is located more than 500 miles off the coast of Mexico's Baja California coast, poses no threat to land.

The average date when the first named storm forms in the Eastern Pacific Basin is June 10, according to NHC data from 1971 to 2009. The Eastern Pacific hurricane season runs from May 15 through November 30, with peak activity from July through September.

While it may seem odd for the Pacific's first storm to be so strong, Weather.com meteorologist Jonathan Erdman discovered it's not all that uncommon.

The 2015 season began with Category 4 Hurricane Andres, followed by Category 4 Hurricane Blanca, the record earliest-in-season second Eastern Pacific hurricane and major hurricane, which later became the record earliest Baja California landfall, as a tropical storm.
